Happy Sunday! There is a great deal facing each person in this time of pandemic. There are layers of need and people have expressed a generalized challenge in carrying rapidly shifting needs. Once God grants the gift of listening humanity takes on new dimensions. Cultural supports to practice the faith are rounding into limited circles and yet we believe God is raising up Saints, including you! Who me? Yes, you! The mission field is here in our cities, our neighborhoods and in our homes. It did not look good before the Red Sea parted, before John the Baptist was born or before Christ rose from the dead. And yet, in the tumult God ripened belief in the hearts of his followers and in encouraging one believer to another. This Sunday, do not lose heart this Mission Sunday. Christ is in the lead! We are helping one another! Even though we may be apart our prayer unites us with the greatest depths. Love is the greatest gift and today is received in the Eucharist. Keep going! A little further and he will will bring us to a land rich in growth and beside restful waters. Know of Christ’s living love for you. Peace!
Happy Sunday! Putting on the wedding garment is the new life in Christ thru the grace of our Baptism and our participation with it. This Sunday we thank God for all God parents. Peace!
Happy Sunday! Today is the feast of Saint Francis who was from Assisi, Italy as was his life’s spiritual friend St. Clare. Francis left the world to live more fully with God to carry out the repair of the church. May all Franciscans be strengthened in faith. For us May a humble heart be ours to love those of all beliefs or those with no faith. For in those we encounter, we see the image of God. This Sunday utter a prayer for Pope Francis who upon his acceptance to the chair of Peter elevated with him the world’s poor by name and action. We are all poor in one way or another for in this emptying we find more alive in us the will of God who came to save everyone from all that keeps them from total union with him. We continue to pray for all impacted by the Coronavirus. St. Francis, pray for us. Peace!
Happy Sunday! On this Priesthood Sunday we give thanks for every priest-Senior priests, Seasoned priests, newly ordained, Those struggling, the lost, and the long faithful. You are in our prayers this Sunday and everyday. As Spiritual Fathers you understand Labor & delivery very well. Your endless sacrifices have given us confidence to understand the true love of God. For the lost priest, we need you back as our priest. Accept the mercy our Lord extends in the sacrament of penance. Think of Heaven. We need your prayers and celebration of the the Mass once more. Today be still and know you are in our heart and prayers. God grant your sons, our priests, the constancy of your undaunted courage and eternal love. Peace!
Happy Sunday! Recall the mercy of God. His love is everlasting! He is awaiting your hand and return. This Sunday let us pray for souls to be moved to seek the tenderness of the shepherd, Jesus Christ! Peace!
